Update on my tank

Just a quick update on my tank... (if anyone's interested!)

My battle with hair algae is beginning to be won. I bought my own RO DI unit and am now producing my own water. Getting TSD of around 1-2. My shop bought water was around 24!! I didn't know till I tested it.

I have also stopped dropping frozen food into the tank. Now I put it onto some kitchen roll, folded into four, so it absorbs the juice when it melts. This works great.

I've also found two great new tank inhabitants..!

I tiny tiny starfish and a long scary worm ha ha!!
I'm guessing it's a bristle worm.

My pulsing xena is slowly growing. I really want it to grow up the back of my tank to cover the back wall but I'm not sure how to get it off the stone it's on and onto the back.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Looks terrific! Thanks so much for the pictures. I live vicariously through other tanks!

It's hard to get the fish to pose. They don't seem to want to listen?

With the xenia you can scrape it off the plug with a razorblade and either use coral glue or gel super glue to stick it on the back wall.

What's your stock list? You look like you have quite a few fish

I've got two clowns, 6-line wrasse, algae blenny, emperor cardinal, and a small yellow one (blenny too I think, he never gets any bigger.

Also I got a fire shrimp, cleaner shrimp and peppermint shrimp. Plus snails, hermits etc and one emerald crab.

I think I'm on my limit for fish. I'm not planning on putting anymore in there.

The yellow fish looks like a clown goby to me. A yellow rock goby is another name for it I think! Nice tank btw
